Greyhounds As Pets Annual Appeal 2021


We will be holding our Annual Street Appeal this year from February 8th until February 14th and GAP needs your help!  

Volunteers (and their hounds) will take to the streets this February to raise funds to help us rehome retired racing greyhounds with loving families. GAP’s Annual Street Appeal is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and is a great way for us to connect with our community and potential new adopters.  

Last year we had a record number of adoptions, but due to COVID fundraising was very difficult. We need your support now more than ever.

There are lots of ways you can help us with our annual appeal, every little bit helps! You can simply donate below, or you can volunteer for our street appeal or organise your own fundraiser. To make it easier for friends and family to support you and your hound and help more Greyhounds find homes, you can even create a "virtual bucket" and set up your own Annual Appeal Givealittle page on behalf of GAP NZ in a few easy steps.

Want to donate now?

Your donation funds our rehoming programme including post-adoption advice and support for the lifetime of a pet greyhound. Donations help to care for the greyhounds in foster care, to pay their vet bills, to train them to become pets and to help them find their loving forever families.
